The Age of RFID

RFID implants

RFID chips seem to be all the rage as of late.

Some applications and uses of RFID:

And coming soon to a country near you:

Indeed, Big Brother is coming in increasingly smaller packages and will begin to invade our privacy and anonymity more and more.

How long will it be before your company requires you to be injected with an RFID chip for “security” purposes? How long before your children are implanted to be monitored? How long before your FRNs (also known as cash) are tagged with RFID chips?

So much for anonymity.

And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:
And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. (Revelation 13:16-17)

‘Nuff said.

    I have always wanted to have my big brother around everywhere I went. I want one of those RFID things.

    having participated in process, I can tell you that the the covers already have rf blocking material included. just shut the thing and it can’t be read. you should probably also read up on BAC.

    yes there are some problems, but as far as I could tell they were due to the need to get something out instead of spending years hashing out the details rather than any malicious intent.

    basically it is an easily read but difficult to forge travel document. I’m all for cryptographically signed travel documents.
